Amble URC and The Puffin Lounge

The town of Amble is working towards becoming a dementia-friendly town, and to that end a drop-in session once a fortnight was launched. It’s called ‘The Puffin Lounge’ and they welcome anyone who comes in, be it people living with dementia, their families, carers and friends. People have a cup of tea, enjoy a game of dominoes or downfall, do some knitting etc. You are likely to hear the jollity before you come through the door! As well as providing a safe, secure and happy place for people, it has drawn the attention of those outside the church. One person not connected with church has made a colourful noticeboard to put up outside when they are ‘open for business’.
